Samsung said to be working on new, even bigger Galaxy Note

Sentiment over whether the mammoth screen on the original Galaxy Note (pictured above) seemed to be split between people who found it useful, and those who found it a bit excessive. Apparently not content with the 5.3-inch screen on its original smartphone/tablet hybrid, Samsung is reportedly poised to unveil the Galaxy Note 2, a device that manages to up the already enormous screen size to 5.5-inches.

The new Note is also said to feature a more powerful processor, as well as an improved camera, pushing past the original's 8.0-megapixel lens and landing closer to 12 or 13 megapixels. Of course, this means we'll have to yet again ask the question of whether we really need a smartphone with a tablet form factor, but given our own Taylor Hatmaker's enthusiastic response to the first Note, we're eager to see exactly how the Note 2 stacks up.

Samsung will supposedly reveal the new handset at the IFA consumer electronics show, which takes place in Germany this August. If this well-sourced information does indeed pan out, you can expect at least another year's worth of conjecture over whether a smartphone with a stylus is simply too much to handle.
